In February, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) released a memo directing each US funding agency with over $100 million in annual research expenditure to develop a plan to support public access to the results of research funded by the federal government, including results published in scholarly journals.  How has the OSTP memo impacted scholarly publishing so far? What exactly has been achieved so far and what will it mean for the future of US published research?  This interactive session features a panel of speakers who will be discussing the recent developments and emerging issues from the librarian, funder, researcher, and publisher perspectives.  Among the questions to be addressed are:
  • What is the US position on implementing open access?
  • What steps have been taken to implement OSTP objectives?
  • What role do institutional repositories play in open access?
  • How will funder’s open access policies impact universities and researchers?
  • What role are publishers playing in the implementation of open access?
  • How will open access content be linked and measured? Will it affect usage?
